Baroness Estelle Morris, Patron of Darley Dale based Charity, First Taste, welcomed local Derbyshire Dales MP & Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, and local civic digmnatories (Cllr Peter Slack, Chairman of Derbyshire Dales District Council & Cllr Ian Walker, Mayor of Darley Dale) and Cynthia Machent, President of Matlock Rotary Club to the Whitworth Centre at Darley Dale on Friday 21 February to launch First Taste’s second reminiscence film “Food for Thought”. The Launch Event was well attended with representatives from: the film’s funders; local authorities; managers and care staff from homes and day care centres as well as many delegates from other groups and organisations with an interest in or working with frail older people with dementia.
Following the success of the Charity’s first reminiscence film “Where’er You Walk”, produced two years ago, First Taste’s Trustees were encouraged to produce this follow- up DVD using food as its central theme. This new film has again been produced specifically to support memory work with older people with dementia by care staff in nursing and care homes or in day care centres
The production costs of “Food for Thought” have been supported by grants from: the National Lottery’s Awards for All Programme, the Ernest Bailey Trust, Matlock Rotary Club & Derbyshire County Councillor Mike Longden through the County’s Community Leaders Fund, and Winster Guisers as well as a number of private donations.
The new film is available for purchase at £10 per copy here.
